Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few details to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing: How often does your system break down? If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement system. An AC built today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last leg.
